News like this can’t stay quiet for long! Halter Ranch Owner, Hansjörg Wyss has been nominated for Wine Enthusiast’s 2020 Wine Star Awards in the category of Social Visionary.
"The owner of Halter Ranch vineyard and winery in Paso Robles, California, Hansjörg Wyss, topped the winery’s long-term commitment to sustainability with the announcement that he would give $1 billion over 10 years to a climate change initiative. National Geographic called it the single largest commitment in history by an individual to help expand land and ocean conservation, and, in 2019, honored him with its inaugural Philanthropist of the Year Award. Wyss is a Swiss citizen who founded the medical device manufacturer Synthes and sold it to Johnson & Johnson in 2012."
Each year, the comprehensive media staff at Wine Enthusiast magazine nominates the most influential members of the alcohol beverage industry for the annual Wine Star Awards. Congratulations to all the incredible nominees in this year’s competition!
